The UK’s Royal Mail has revealed a series of first-class stamps featuring characters from the Star Trek film and television franchises.
Mail, the final frontier
On November 13th, the Royal Mail will release two different sets of Star Trek stamps. The main set will consist of twelve stamps depicting characters from six Star Trek television series. The set features the captains and one additional character (mostly played by a British actor).
There is also a smaller set of six stamps for Star Trek movies, focusing entirely on characters played by British actors.
Philip Parker of the Royal Mail said of the Star Trek release: “For more than 50 years Star Trek has enthralled and inspired generations of loyal fans with extraordinary adventures and an optimistic vision of humanity’s future. We celebrate the Star Trek Universe with stylish new stamps of its iconic characters.”
You can pre-order each set individually or get both in a special presentation pack for £14.80 ($19.25).
There’s a large range of collectibles available for the new Star Trek stamps, including postcards, silver coins, enlarged frameable versions of the stamps, and more. Shipping is available worldwide. For more information or to pre-order, visit www.royalmail.com/startrek.
